The Bills have their own questions at quarterback, but will likely end up putting the pigskin in the hands of first-round pick, E.J. Manuel. Therein, the problem lies for Buffalo. Some fans are confident the young signal-caller can amount to a solid starting quarterback, but I have my doubts. He played in a weak conference, and the stats don’t exactly bewilder the average passerby. Especially when he had such a formidable defensive to keep him in all those close games.

The Dolphins are an interesting case, and could be an exciting team to watch this year. I’m going to rule out the division for them, but a Wild Card isn’t out of immediate reach in a separated AFC. The team has brought in Mike Wallace and has found a new name for its defense in Dion Jordan.

I’m certainly still going with the New England Patriots for the division title, but it might be a bit closer than it was last year.

Projected Records:

New England Patriots: 11-5

Miami Dolphins: 9-7

New York Jets: 5-11

Buffalo Bills: 3-13

    Good prediction of the AFC EAST. I also have the Pats at 11-5. The Dolphins at 9-7 ( competing for a wild card spot). The Jets will struggle and may win 4 or 5 games. The Bills will be fighting the Jets to keep out of the basement. Nice early assessment.
